No, nothing changed with the newest version.

I am using standard linux terminal (tty) and tmux.

Maybe its something with my shell (zsh) or with some of the local mods i 
have made but i cant work this out. I have reset the tty/pts io related 
staff with stty sane in my login procedure.
Anyway, thanks.
